Twitter is now an option for travelers who want to be notified about closures on Wyoming’s highways.

WYDOT has created Twitter feeds for I-80, I-25 and I-90, and for the rest of the state’s highways broken down into five regions. Once on Twitter, users can search for WYDOT and choose which of the eight feeds they want to follow.

WYDOT GIS/ITS Manager Vince Garcia said the Twitter feed is meant to be a really immediate release of information and they are trying to focus on road closure information at this point. He said WYDOT will consider the feedback it gets from travelers to decide whether to add information to the feeds such as advisories for no unnecessary travel or the chain law being in effect on a highway section.

In addition to Twitter, WYDOT’s 511 Travel Information Service provides road and weather condition information by calling 511, or going to www.wyoroad.info on the Web, where camera views of 148 highway sections and a map graphically depicting conditions is available. The 511 Notify program provides email and text alerts about closures and advisories.
